In the tangled and dense jungles of the Amazon there are numerous mysteries that could probably help us understand how ancient civilizations live in the distant past. We know so little about our planet, and researchers are unaware of the possible finding that can be discovered in the Amazon.

​As technology moves forward and tools as Google Earth become more popular, many people try their luck hoping to make a discovery that no one else has made in the past. Google Earth has become the one of the boldest tools numerous archaeologists are using, consistently delivering huge results that help researchers in many ways.

We are talking about the pyramids of paratoari, usually referred to as “the dots”, seen in one of the satellite images from NASA.

I look forward to reading more about this - although I must say it looks rather like an angry green pimple than a pyramid and doesn't seem to be the same shape as some of the South American pyramids.

Interesting discovery, if legit ... do you have a source for the aerial images at the 02:45 mark? Or is an image of similar resolution still available via Google Earth?

Thanks. Apparently that's the black and white image showing the dots (source). Is there a source for the color photos as well?

IIRC, this site was visited in maybe the 80's (maybe earlier?) and it turned out that they were weren't anywhere near as regular in shape or spacing as they appeared in the satellite image (which was black and white, I'm not sure what the color image @ 00:55 is) and the conclusion was that they were a natural formation.

EDIT:

Yeah, here you go: Atlas Obscura - Pyramids of Paratoari


In 1996 Gregory Deyermenjian, member of the explorers club and Peruvian explorer, made an expedition to the "pyramids" to find out what they were once and for all. While Deyermenjian a seasoned Peruvian explorer has found plenty of evidence of Incan inhabitance in the area, such as petroglyphs, paved roads, and platforms, the pyramids or "dots" were not. Upon close inspection Deyermenjian could see that they were not made by human hands but were natural sandstone formations, known as truncated ridge spurs, which can take the form of natural pyramids.


BTW, Gregory Deyermenjian is the guy pictured in front of the petroglyphs. Those are the the Petroglyphs of Pusharo.

Ahhh ... mommy nature playing with 'anthro-apologists' again... too bad.

Though there are a zillion investigation worthy sights in the Amazon region, of course... one that still tickles me is the huge swath of area in Guyana that appears to have been something of an urban sprawl, with irrigation ditches and overgrown farmlands stretching for miles... I last read of it a decade ago and some est 8,000 bp pottery was found, but funding was scarce as it lacked big pyramids.

I wish I could be more informative (or interesting, or even younger and richer) but that's all my memory has atm.

Hmm, that french ruin look's almost like the stone's from Greenland were the viking church was ground down during the little ice age but that ice age did not cause glaciation that far south, there was one but that was of course over 12000 years ago now, could this be that old?, could this be the remain's of an ancient stone city ground down by the ice age? unlikely but not impossible and a great video.

As for the other site's, not glaciation but definitely intriguing.
